On my machine (WH C-185), the reverse position is there, but the cutout in
the frame for the shifter lever won't allow you to shift into "reverse".
It's to the left of the low range gears. The gears may be there too,
but I haven't opened it to find out. I didn't realize this until I
actually dropped the transaxle for the restoration.
I'm not sure if the E12's have the same trans or

I'm have some questions regarding the transmission for my E12:
1. My owner's manual shows 4 speeds: D2, D1, L and LL. However, my
Peerless Mechanic's Handbook for Elec-Trak Garden Tractors shows only 3- and
4-speed transaxles. The 3-speed is desribed as having 3 forward speeds
and 1 reverse. The 4-speed is described as having 4-speeds forward and 1
reverse. What gives?
2. I brought the transmission to a repair shop and the guy is concerned
about whether I can get parts (gaskets, seals, gears, etc) before he opens it
up. Can anyone shed some light on this?
